Other name(s): bchU (gene name)
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:bacteriochlorophyllide-d C-20 methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, found in green sulfur bacteria (Chlorobiaceae) and green flimentous bacteria (Chloroflexaceae), catalyses the methylation of the C-20 methine bridge position in bacteriochlorophyllide d, forming bacteriochlorophyllide c.
